COBRA Advisor

The COBRA Advisor can help you determine your compliance with key requirements under the federal Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act, including requirements related to:

  • Notices
  • Qualifying events
  • COBRA election procedures
  • Duration of continuation coverage
  • Paying for COBRA

COBRA generally requires group health plans with 20 or more employees in the prior year to offer continuation coverage to covered employees, former employees, spouses, former spouses, and dependent children when group health coverage would otherwise be lost due to certain specific events.

HR360’s new attorney-developed Federal & State Mini-COBRA Chart explains the continuation of benefits requirements that apply under both federal and state law. For employers with 19 or fewer employees, many states have their own mini-COBRA, or state continuation of benefits, requirements.

Make sure you know your mini-COBRA obligations by downloading the attorney-developed chart at the link below.

Your employee handbook should be as clear and unambiguous as possible, and written in an understandable language.

Wrap Document

A “wrap” document is a drafting device used to supplement already-existing documentation. More specifically, a wrap document provides the information required by ERISA by incorporating (or “wrapping” itself around) the insurance policy or similar third-party contract. When a wrap document is utilized, the insurance policy or contract remains part of the plan document. That is, the “wrap” document and the insurance policy or contract together comprise the complete plan document.

Why Does an Employer Need a “Wrap” Document?
The insurance policy or contract issued to an employer rarely meets all the requirements of an ERISA plan document. This is not surprising given that an insurer’s main focus is generally on complying with state laws regulating insurance and not on ERISA compliance. Even when insurers attempt to satisfy ERISA’s requirements, the resulting document does not typically contain all of the provisions designed to protect the plan, the plan administrator, and other plan fiduciaries. Consequently, the use of a “wrap” plan document ensures ERISA compliance (through the “wrap” portion of the document) as well as an accurate insurer-provided benefit description.

Section 125 Document

A Section 125 Document (also called a POP Document, Cafeteria Plan, or PCP Document) is a written plan that allows employers to take certain insurance premium deductions on behalf of their employees on a pre-tax basis. Section 125 refers to the section in the IRS tax code that includes this regulation.

All employers must have a written Section 125 document in place in order to take premium deductions on a pre-tax basis. Although government entities and church groups are exempt from ERISA, they still need to have a Section 125 Document in place. We are able to provide separate Section 125 Documents, however, the Wrap Document includes a Section 125 Document at no additional cost.
